Nelson based contractors, developers and investors Barnfield Construction have named Pendleside Hospice and the Lighthouse Club Industry Charity as their chosen charities of the year.
As official stand partner of Burnley Football Club, Barnfield Construction hosted an end of season football match ‘Barnfield V Contractors’ at Turf Moor after the Championship parade to mark the start of fundraising for the two charities.
Annabel Fowler, Marketing Manager at Barnfield Construction said, “It was a great game enjoyed by all and we’d like to thank our local contractors, suppliers and partners for raising just under £3000 to kickstart our fundraising.”
“An important part of our purpose is supporting charities and the communities in which we operate and this year we asked employees to nominate causes close to their hearts, Pendleside Hospice and the Lighthouse Charity won the most votes.”
Louisa Mayor, Head of Income Generation at Pendleside Hospice said, “Last year Barnfield Construction raised over £19,000 for Pendleside Hospice and this year we are really pleased to welcome them back to our Corporate Challenge this year with other local businesses across Burnley and Pendle in a bid to raise vital funds as well as their fundraising efforts for The Lighthouse Club.”
Bill Hill, CEO if the Lighthouse Charity said, “Every single working day two people in the construction industry take their own life and a crucial element of our strategy is to provide free and easy access to a wide range of pro-active resources to support the wellbeing of the construction workforce. We’d like to thank everyone at Barnfield Construction for voting for our charity and we hope that there will be lots of fun had by everyone whilst raising much needed funds for our charity. We receive no public funding, so this really does mean a huge amount to us, thank you.”
